Ron Paul has taken to Twitter to dish out his views on the death of SEAL Chris Kyle, slain by a veteran who suffered from PTSD.
According to police reports, which I covered
yesterday, he has been gunned down by 25-year-old Eddie Ray Routh, whom he was trying to help deal with life outside a combat zone.
In an ironic twist of fate, he has been shot at a gun range, as he was offering his support in getting him “readjusted.”
Kyle, dubbed "America’s Deadliest Sniper," has been rewarded for his achievement in combat, his death toll surpassing 150 kills.
He has even written a book about it, titling the best-seller "American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in US Military History."
In his Twitter post, relayed by NewsMax
, Texas ex-representative Ron Paul basically suggests that the SEAL has inflicted so much damage, that he deserves to suffer the same fate.
"Chris Kyle's death seems to confirm that 'he who lives by the sword dies by the sword.' Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn't make sense," Paul writes.
Do you think he might have a point? Leave your response in the comment section.
